2:35 am

no herin
2:35 am
herinfernallady

The meter people changed it off a smart meter and I am wondering if that is going to affect the bill in the past
2:36 am

must be a victoria thing, nothing smart about our meters
2:36 am

all our bills have been much higher than last year
2:37 am

sorry, more coffee in the pbb i hope?

I was just wondering.
2:38 am
herinfernallady

Ruby you can stay I didn't ahve that
2:39 am
rubyfoo

I'm not swift this AM (or, i.e. less swift than usual)
2:40 am

lol ruby, i haven't been swift for years
2:40 am

can you keep up with Hugo?
2:41 am

2:42 am

*poof*
2:42 am
Andree

only just, he tends to pull me along, i am trying to teach him to walk to heel, he is winning
2:42 am
rubyfoo

heel? a chow chow would say"You want me to do what?"
2:43 am
herinfernallady

ANdree use your mum voice and train the dog
2:45 am
Andree

i am trying herin, we go to obedience classes, until he can heel and stand its kindergarten forever
2:45 am
herinfernallady

awww
2:45 am
herinfernallady

he just is determined
2:45 am
rubyfoo

I think the dogs could be trained, but husband refuses, wants them to have "fee will" which is OK asa long as a car isn't coming
2:46 am
rubyfoo

free*
2:48 am
Andree

i sort of 1/2 agree with him ruby, hugo is 1/2 spaniel and dashing about sniffing the ground is in his nature, this heeling is not
2:48 am
rubyfoo

it's just easier to walk a dog who will "stay" when asked
2:48 am
rubyfoo

when Ruby walks with me, she is much better behaved
2:49 am
herinfernallady

My parents dog is 9 or 10 and she is a pig headed Staf that has not grown out of puppy stafe
2:49 am
herinfernallady

stage
2:49 am
rubyfoo

they have a big enclosed garden and can do what they like in it, but in the street, it's different
2:49 am
Andree

he will sit, stay, stop etc , its the heel and stand that will keep us in kindy for the rest of our days
2:50 am
rubyfoo

staffs are so cute! big heads and smart
2:50 am
herinfernallady

awwww
2:50 am
herinfernallady

Have you tried a new command? Like parkarse
2:50 am
rubyfoo

sit, stay and stop are enough. Heel is asking too much!
2:51 am
Andree

hugo agrees with you ruby
2:51 am
rubyfoo

hahah
2:51 am

real poof

7:59 am
Scrabbler

Eva, she makes me so frustrated, especially because she knows I am a planner that does not like spontaneous changes in plans. I try to focus on her great qualities but sometimes she makes me crazy.
7:59 am
Mom

that is French stew
8:00 am
EvaNadine

i had a friend who was similar. she would either change plans, or else just run so late for everything that it ended up making our plans change.
for various reasons, we arent friends anymore...
8:00 am
herinfernallady

Scrabbler think of it this way. One day for you what do you want to do? Hike, swim play with bunnies
8:01 am
Scrabbler

Example: June vacation planned with 4 women. One became ill the night before we were to leave so this friend I speak of calls the next morning and opts out--just didn't feel like going!

I waited several days to see if she would pay her portion of the cost of the rental. FInally I called and told her what her portion was.
8:03 am
wht

I should be on the road today taking my son back to college but he is still in his room packing.
8:03 am
EvaNadine

i had once taken a half day from work so we could leave early to head to the beach (a 2-3 hour drive).
when i get home, my friend calls to say her roommates cat got out and they were looking for it. we ended up leaving for the beach AFTER the time we would have left if i hadnt bothered to take a half day.
i think its great that she wanted to help find the roommates cat, but not when we already had plans. and i ended up wasting leave because of it.
8:03 am
CiociaJudy

Yikes, Scrabs. Did she pay up?
8:04 am
herinfernallady

Eva I would have helped look for the kitty did the kitty come back?
8:04 am
Scrabbler

Yes, she didn't even argue, BUT with a subsequent vacation she decided against leaving a day early "because I don't want to pay if I am not staying."
8:05 am
EvaNadine

yes, kitty was fine.
8:05 am
herinfernallady

That is just me. I would have helped look for the kitty
8:05 am
CiociaJudy

Scrabs, sounds like it's more work than enjoyment with planning anything with her
8:06 am
lynxxx

She must gave other good attributes Scrabs, I don't think I could be bothered with her
8:06 am
Scrabbler

She is hilarious + kind but also thoughtless + selfish. And, yes, I must accept that plans with her are always subject to change at any time.
8:07 am
EvaNadine

herin, in theory, i probably would have too. but this gal was always late for everything.
we were also supposed to do the same trip for my bday one year, but it ended up snowing. instead of saying up front "hey, if it snows, i cant go because i need to be here for XYZ reasons" she waited until it was basically too late for me to make any other plans, then said she couldnt go.
so i ended up spending my birthday at home by myself.
8:07 am
Scrabbler

I am starting to feel us parting somewhat in our close friendship. And, should I tell her why? All of us that are friends have the same difficulty with her.
8:07 am
Scrabbler

Poor Eva.
8:07 am
CiociaJudy

It seems the older I get the less tolerance I have for time-consuming people in my life
8:08 am
herinfernallady

:( I would have partied with you
8:08 am
Scrabbler

I agree, Judy. But this is my only kayaking + hiking pal here.
8:08 am
lynxxx

Maybe just don't invite her on the extended vacations and limit her to dinners and parties where it doesn't matter as much
8:08 am
CiociaJudy

Wow, Eva. That wasn't very nice!! Babblers would be happy to party anytime! LOL
8:09 am
EvaNadine

that was the final event that caused the end of our friendship. i had called her several times throughout the day asking if she was still going to be able to go, and she wouldnt give me a straight answer.
finally, when it was too late, she called and said she wasnt going, so needless to say, i was rather short with her.
SHE actually broke off the friendship with ME because she thought i was rude to her and not understanding of her responsibilities!
8:09 am
Scrabbler

I think that someone else needs to make plans that include her so that she can't make the changes. She tends to arrange group dinners or tennis matches.
8:10 am
Scrabbler

Selfish, thoughtless people just don't get it, Eva.
8:10 am
lynxxx

I know - Scrab & Evas friends can get together!
8:10 am
Anniebrook

I know the feeling of losing a kitty. I would have helped to look for the cat and hope my friend would understand.
8:11 am
Scrabbler

This friend of mine is a rather bossy person, at least that is how I see it, because I try to be fair + thoughtful.
8:11 am
EvaNadine

i would have understood the cat thing if it werent the sort of thing that would happen time + time again to her.
at that point, i was just SO ANGRY that she did it yet again, and that i wasted leave because of her.
8:12 am
herinfernallady

I had to leave this male friend as he was rather offensive and he didn't get that I wasn't going to leave my b.f for him.

8:24 am

i think the trick to naming a rock band is to put 2 disparate words together and add a number eg pigworm three
8:26 am

(since I have this obnoxious addiction/compulsion)
12:29 pm
Dorens

funny... when I was out on the west coast, twice I got seduced by great wine and then went to finish the grid at 10 pm and got "flipped" Hard to remember the time difference when you've had a glass or two of delicious wine, surrounded by amusing family members. so babble did take a bit of a back seat - and it was vacation after all.

Hello, EvaN - nap away.
12:34 pm

well haz, when it happens i just need to remember what I counsel my students. forgive myself, and try to be careful not to make the same mistake twice (which I managed to do, but blame it on the wine!)
12:35 pm
EvaNadine

so, i just cut up an apple to have with some peanut butter, but now its not what i want.
::sigh::
12:35 pm
Haz1558

I just worry what you'll be like when you get a case of ruru's wine.
12:35 pm
Dorens

i'll take it gladly evaN, my salad wasn't satisfying
12:35 pm
EvaNadine

my leftover quesadilla casserole was quite yummy. :)
12:36 pm
Dorens

ha, haz. not much better, I'm afraid. However, I do know the time that flip occurs here on the east coast, so it shouldn't present a big babble problem
12:36 pm

Spangle barking outside, I must investigate.... enjoy the grid!

absolutely, but I was glad to finally get home from school to really be able to enjoy it
7:15 pm
stidmama

that's too bad, Min. It's rough to do all that heavy work.
7:16 pm
Minveryork

It took you two hours to drive home from work? How long is your commute normally?I drive a little over an hour to and from work.But job is worth the commute
7:16 pm
stidmama

I am enjoying it, though. Today I got to just "hang out" with some students while that teacher took an emergency bathroom break... and I helped two students open their lockers...
7:16 pm
mcurlschool

then you deserve an A for the day

jillibus

Hi all briefly -- expcting neighbours in a few minutes.
7:17 pm
stidmama

It is never less than an hour or so anyway Min -- when I can go 70 most of the way (speed limit is 60). Yesterday and today there were HUGE backups in predictable locations, so it took twice as long.
7:17 pm
Minveryork

Are you working in a high school stidmama?You like it
7:17 pm

hi all

Hello jillibus! How are you doing? Welcome to the grid

Minveryork

Hi jmcnrick! How are you doing? Welcome to the grid
7:18 pm
stidmama

Middle school, Min. I enjoy it greatly.
7:18 pm
stidmama

Wish I didn't have to do elementary in the Spring, but must student teach in an elementary in order to hold that certification.
7:18 pm
stidmama

Otherwise, would choose to teach middle school again in an instant.
7:19 pm
mcurlschool

hey, elementary is not that bad!
7:19 pm
Minveryork

We're getting middle school in my school building.We got 6th grade last year, 7th grade this year and 8th grade next year. Middle school is tough age to teach
7:19 pm
stidmama

oh, it's not bad, mcurl! LOL I worked in Mother's 1 and 2 classes all those years! But I really enjoy the older kids just as much, and they need caring adults.
7:21 pm
stidmama

I would MUCH prefer doing middle school with a block format than the piece-meal high school format (and the research supports the block model). But you teach with the schedule you are given, right?
7:21 pm
mcurlschool

I thought I didn't like kindergarten but was hired as a long term sub at that level and now I wish I could spend all my time there. Mainly in 4th and 5th grade other than that. My one on one is repeating 4th grade with the teacher that I volunteer for so we're having some good times already
7:21 pm
Minveryork

I've actually never taught middle school, but I do he 4/5 that it is a tough age to teach.So glad you like it
7:22 pm
stidmama

That's nice, mcurl! I think intermediate grades are exciting, too.
7:23 pm
stidmama

of course, I am not student teaching where there is block scheduling, but my own kids' had modified block (in a very small K-8 school) so I know how it works, and how it scaffolds the kids who really need the support while allowing the more mature students to take leadership roles.
7:23 pm
Minveryork

This year, principal assigned grades for me to teach.
7:23 pm
mcurlschool

everybody has their "niche"; I've already told the mom of my guy that I will absolutely not follow him to the middle school. Not that I don't like the kids but more the personalities of some of the long time staff.
7:24 pm
stidmama

what you will teach, Min?
7:24 pm
Minveryork

I have NEVER been assigned grades to teach. I have always had the freedom to choose my grades and do schedule as I see fit,but not this year. I'm not happy about it. I put in for a transfer, but I did not get it.
7:24 pm
stidmama

how is your family, mcurl?
7:25 pm
mcurlschool

we are good. Anxiously waiting word that it's time to head to the hospital for the arrival of little miss Paige!
7:26 pm
stidmama

oh! I didn't realize her arrival was imminent! *moves Paige-mama up on the list*
7:26 pm
Minveryork

This year I was assigned to teach 2nd and 3rd grade.
7:26 pm
mcurlschool

due date is the 15th but momma to be is begging for any time!
7:26 pm
stidmama

"refeat" to humiliate the Seattle Mariners... again. (and again and...)
7:26 pm
Minveryork

I will also teach one or two other grades, but I don't know what grades yet. I like 2nd & 3rd grade though
7:26 pm
stidmama

oh, those are nice grades, though!
7:27 pm
stidmama

Do you teach a single subject within the school?
7:27 pm
stidmama

woo-hoo! got an 8!
7:28 pm
Minveryork

I teach English as a Second Language. Are there ESL teachers in middle school where you work stidmama?
7:28 pm
stidmama

"nogaton" an explosive of no force?
7:28 pm
stidmama

oh! I see. That explains the many grades. I have never been in a school big enough to actually assign a a particular grade to an ESL teacher...
7:29 pm
stidmama

I am sure my middle school does, Min, but I haven't met most of the specialists yet. Each department and grade tend to keep to themselves.
7:29 pm
mcurlschool

we have a person that works with our ELL (english language learners) at the elem in a "pull out" fashion grades K-5
7:30 pm
stidmama

yes, our local schools do pull-out also.
7:31 pm
stidmama

The middle school I was in last year had some bilingual classes, and a couple self-contained classes, but the self-contained were just one teacher for the whole school.
7:31 pm
Minveryork

Yes,I prefer to do pull-out than push-in,but principal is making me do some push-in as well. I got a new ESL partner this year. I just met him. Has no experience in elementary. His background is Adult ESL education
7:32 pm
stidmama

hmph. that will make it tough unless he can adjust to what kids can actually do...
7:32 pm
mcurlschool

hope he has a quick learning curve
7:32 pm
Minveryork

I think my prinicpal hired him just to fill the position.
7:33 pm
Minveryork

She wanted all of her staff in tact for when students come back which will be next Tuesday.
7:33 pm
stidmama

I need one more tile for NBT
7:33 pm
mcurlschool

that's to bad; my district did the same type of thing for the SPED teacher at my grade 4-5 level....put a teacher who had been RIF'd the previous year in a position not qualified for hoping that he'll quit at the end of the year.....oh joy for us
7:34 pm
stidmama

there. NBT
7:34 pm
stidmama

oh no, mcurl! those poor children.
7:34 pm
mcurlschool

brb hubby having grilling problems with dinner
7:35 pm
Minveryork

At the beginning of the day we had no 5th grade and Kindergarten teacher and ESL teacher.By the end of the day, all of those positions had all been filled in.
7:35 pm
stidmama

LOL read "husband is having girling problems..." no idea what it meant, but WAY different!
7:35 pm
Minveryork

That is a severe disservice for those kids. *FROWN*
7:36 pm
stidmama

I agree, Min. probably better to start the year with long-term subs than teachers whose qualifications are iffy at best.
7:36 pm
mcurlschool

too funny stid! I'll pass that on to him.
7:36 pm
stidmama

our school has a couple long-term subs, and one emergency sub had to do the first two days when a teacher had a family emergency.
7:37 pm
stidmama

*gasp* NO! whatever will he think of me! rofl
7:37 pm

he'll just think you're related to me!!!

sandyloo

i am on a diet where you get your meals delivered - husband is away and daughter and i are doing it together, it works out cheaper than shopping, cooking and doing dishes
9:26 pm
Riverdance

vodka has less calories than wine......if we add cranberry juice it would be healthier
9:26 pm
sandyloo

the wine is the hard part for me
9:26 pm
jmcnrick

that is right sandy you said . . . how is that going?
9:27 pm
LeslieAnn

that seems like the way to do it sandy. more often than not i eat crap because i don't want to put in the effort to make something healthy
9:27 pm
Riverdance

Hi sandy - up late or early for your??? more power to you and your daughter - I am weak....*bows head*
9:27 pm
jmcnrick

my problem is that if i drink too much i snack and want sugar
9:27 pm
sandyloo

going well, not so hard to stick to, but still having a couple of glasses of wine at night - but i am going away for 5 days, nicky will stay on it but i will go off it for the week-
9:27 pm
Riverdance

I just drink more - no snacks
9:28 pm
Jillyjill

It really is simple...eat less, move more...but so very hard to do!!
9:28 pm
sandyloo

its not a quick loss, gradual and healthy
9:28 pm
jmcnrick

maybe you can be restrained if off sandy
9:28 pm
Riverdance

sandy you are doing great - should be proud of yourself
9:28 pm
jmcnrick

9:29 pm
jmcnrick

wtg sandy we will look to you for a role model
9:29 pm
Riverdance

hard to move more when I am chained to my desk all day at work and in car picking up kids after, then doing supper, dishes, laundry, whatever at night
9:29 pm
sandyloo
